Huascarán Sur: The Shield
It looks steeper than it is, but I heard that the ice was rock hard. Normally, the easiest route up here is on the left, but it looks almost impossible to get access there. On the right there is some dangerous looking stuff hanging over the route, so that leaves only the middle.
However, we had no plans for this route. We were planning to climb the normal routes to Huascarán Norte and Sur and would be quite happy if that would work out.
